" So in case you get bored of the sound of guys thwacking sticks on ice, you can listen to those and decide the winner. Just trying to help out "

Whoa there lassie!

Hockey begins with the fine art of ice skating, an Olympic event, add the ball game of golf, arguably founded in Rome @ 300AD (paganica) add-in the game of roller derby as the players charge into their opponents defensive zone body checking each other into the boards of the corners battling for control of the "puck", and when the testosterone levels reach the boiling point and the gloves drop off, add to the mix the primitive combat sport of boxing and there you have it, four events in one, such a deal!

It's understood that some of the folks ascending Everest will tell ya that if a dog can skate and play with a ball what challenge is it for a man? therefore, the only true sport is mountain climbing.

And yes, when the two players are waiting for the puck to drop at the "faceoff" the sticks are tapping on the ice, that's the machismo. This game has to be in your blood to get it! :)

Yeah, well, I'll watch it when they add an ice dancing section.
